Sec. Carson: Number of New Coronavirus Cases May Be Slowing Down

U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson told Fox New’s host Dana Perino Tuesday that the “number of new (coronavirus) cases may be starting to slow down, we may be starting to level out.” Moreover, he said that the trend could mean that we’re moving faster to slow the virus’s spread than the “models had predicted.”

Carson attributed that success to the many people practicing social distancing and staying at home.

He added, “People understand that they have something to do with the mitigation process and we can shorten the duration of this. And we can flatten the curve much faster if we all cooperate.”

FL bans puberty blockers, transgender surgery for minors

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
